U.S. will reached its first 1 Million Dead within 28 days from COVID. It’s tragic that one country has reached this Death Stratosphere from 1 virus in 2 years and 2 months despite of billions spent on Science, Technology and Manpower.
We did our best and still continue to loose People everyday. Today, we grieve for what was lost. Today, we acknowledge our own personal experiences with the Pandemic. We think we are not affected, but we are. All that bottled emotions for the past 2 years, it needs to reconcile. Let it go, let it go. We need to forgive and be forgiven. We need to be free.
So we grieve. We don’t skip the healing process. We don’t jump from denial to back to normal when the viral infection continues to claim lives everyday.
Daily, average of 500 Americans die of COVID. U.S. Census ranked COVID as top 3 causes of Death in America together with Heart Disease and Cancer 2019-2020 and 2020-2021. How we allowed the virus to dominate the big leagues of Death is very disturbing not only because it’s preventable but because many of us are no longer concerned of being sick and infected with it. It’s a willingly ignored health crisis.
“It’s okay to get COVID because symptoms are mild,” mindset is spreading as fast as BA.2. It’s a high risk thinking. No matter mild or asymptomatic, the virus affects our DNA forcing it to mutate to other forms of diseases long term. So, really, it’s never okay to get COVID. Our DNA is unique from one another and will behave uniquely when paired with the virus DNA.
If People try to stay healthy and make lifestyle changes to avoid Heart Attack and Cancer, should we do the same for COVID? It seems like the sensible thing to do. Annual Preventative Care will include COVID Vaccination, and this has nothing to do with the Political beliefs of our Primary Care Physicians. It will be offered together with Shingles Vaccine, Pneumonia Vaccine and Flu Vaccine.
“No one wanted to die but they all died anyways, one or more every second.”
Anyways, I’m personally declaring April as International COVID Awareness Month to remember and grieve the lives lost from COVID.
Awareness includes recognizing People from around the World still struggling and suffering physically, mentally, emotionally and financially with the realness of this Deadly, Crippling Infectious Disease.
Future COVID Surges will be called collectively as “Whatever Surges.” This to me is acceptance of defeat and allowing ourselves to be infected with apathy. “Whatever Surges” will still affect and harm real People. And those People includes, you and me. We are not just “Whatever.”
COVID will surpass everyone’s lifetime because it is being genuinely true to its Nature. It is a Parasitic Killing Organism that mutates with its host DNA so it can effectively eradicate and disable as many as it can, for as long as it can one continent to the next, one country to the next.
How Lethal is COVID to Americans? For every 6 People that will die of COVID from all over the World, 1 will be an American. Perhaps in time, the ratio will widen, but for now, it is very clear which Country has the most Citizens eradicated by the virus. A truth many refuse to see. Why? There was a 19% increased in American Deaths unheard of in the last 100 years. Coincidence or Intentional? Planned or Natural? Victims or Survivors?
Public Safety should be everyone’s responsibility and concern.
As an American, I need to do my part. Being quiet because it’s safe and comfortable will not save another life nor save mine and those I love. Being passive will not help me and my community in the future “Whatever Surges” as a Front Line Health Worker.
Wishing everyone a meaningful Easter. May we find some rest. May we find words of comfort. May we get to feel reborn, cleansed, forgiven. May we get to appreciate time and moments.
